still has faith in john allen, the current u.s. commander in afghanistan who is now under investigation by the pentagon's inspector general for what officials describe as potentially inappropriate e-mails with one of the women directly involved in the case. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, has more on an ever-widening story. >> reporter: the scandal involving two very different women, tampa socialite jill kelley and petraeus biographer and former mistress paula broadwell ensnared not only petraeus but his successor. marine general john allen who took over from petraeus in afghanistan and is the president's choice to be supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe, a nomination now temporarily on hold. >> thank you for all that you have done, for me and for our precious daughters. >> reporter: the general is married with a sterling record. but on a flight to australia monday night, aides to defense secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate commun
's amazing. >> the other thing i find amazing is i remember going through the u.s. treasury in the height of the financial crisis, and back then, you had officials who were scribbling down important facts and figures on scrap paper because that was one of the few things they were able to legally throw away and get rid of. and if you go around other branches of the u.s. government today, people are intensely aware of the risks of e-mails being kept. if you go and talk to private sector banks, nobody working on a bank trading floor these days can possibly not be aware of the risks of tracking thoughts and e-mails. and yet somehow the military just seems not to have noticed this. it is very, very striking. >> there's one other dedataidei this "journal" story, kelley had second thoughts. and people said they made the request, quote, she was worried about the personal information being provided to investigators. >> like the diplomatic license plates. >> talk about the horse after it's left the barn door. >> you predicted fiscal cliff would be the fifth question. it's going to be our second top
republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >> well, i think it's a smart move for john mccain to take the meeting. they're boxed in. this is not a figh
controversy over the administration's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in bengha benghazi. members of congress are now vowing to find out why the cia's conclusion that terrorism was to blame for the attack was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there
weeks after the longest, most expensive and exhausting election in u.s. history eyes are turning to 2016 as speculation begins over the next batch of candidates lining up to run for president. >> who could that be? i know it's going to be a surprise. >> i know it is too. we're moving past these dynasties. >> exactly. >> of ruled politics for decades. republican up and comer jeb bush jr. says he would love to see his dad run for president, and rand paul says he's going to follow in his pop's footsteps too and hillary is going to run too. do you have to be related to somebody who has been president of the united states or run for president of the united states to actually do that yourself? >> i think that's what makes the names. here's jeb jr. >> your dad going to run for president? >> i don't know. no comment. i certainly hope so. >> which is it, i don't know or no comment? >> i think it's the i hope so. >> you said, i don't know, no comment, and i hope so, which are all kind of contradictory. >> give me the full loaf of bread right there. >> word is out of florida jeb is lining up for 20
's first openly gay u.s. senator, defeating tommy thompson. >> and the key word there, "openly." and in maine, independent angus king easily won the senate seat. i am not bottled up on that one. >> the most important adverb of the morning. >> the most notable pickup for republicans was in nebraska where deb fischer flipped ben nelson's seat defeating bob kerrey. >> look at these numbers, mike, really quickly before we go to break. that race was getting close, we had heard, near the end. kerrey was catching up. but i'll tell you what, in all of these races, barack obama's coattails were long. in nebraska, you look at those numbers, you look at massachusetts, it wasn't even close in the end. mitt romney had no coattails. in fact, he had a really detrimental impact on a lot of these candidates. >> mitt romney lost in every state he's ever liver lived. >> that's a bad sign. >> do you think his dog's going to even look at him today? >> you know the guy who's in charge of the research committee for republican senate candidates? >> well, no, i don't, thank god. i mean, seriously. the
is how he feels about the u.s. that's been a big question mark for everyone here. what is this man's relationship to the u.s. what is our relationship with egypt going to be. and one of the very interesting things is through out the recent crisis in gaza, even on the phone with president obama 24-7. he made six calls to the white house, one of them at 2:30 in the morning. he came away saying the president was very, very helpful and he feels the u.s. and egypt have a strong relationship and they're very much in alignment about goals in the region. >> what does that translate into in terms of practical steps? for example, we know the arms are going in to gaza, from the sudan into egypt, into the tunnels and into gaza. is he prepared to stop that flow and bring some stability? >> i think that's going to be a real interesting question. the first point of order is to see what he does with the constitutional issue in his own country. that's bin the big hoopla over the last several weeks. he's made this big power grab. what does that mean? what kind of friend will he be in the region. we
," the u.s. customs and border patrol cuts, smugglers taking an unorthodox route to try and cross the southern border, going over the fence in a car. the two suspects drove a jeep cherokee up a ramp set up along a 14-foot-high in arizona and got stuck there. agents say the suspects ran back to mexico and escaped. >> from china or the u.s.? >> leaving a jeep cherokee behind. >>> let's go to "politico" and mike allen with a look at the "playbook." hey, mike. >> welcome to november, the month when presidents are chosen. >> it is november. i had to pause to think about that. well, i'm glad you brought up presidents being chosen. we've got new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls to go through. let's get your take on these one by one. in wisconsin, the president with a three-point lead within the margin of error. he's tied there. that's down from a six-point edge. in new hampshire, president obama and mitt romney also in a tie. a month before the debate, the president had a seven-point lead there according to the poll. in iowa, romney ahead of the president by six points, outside the
. you know, "u.s. news & world report" had a cover talking about the end of the democratic party. you remember 1980. >> yeah, yeah. >> people were saying the same thing about the end of the democratic party. two years later in 1982, democrats had a massive landslide victory. the same thing happened in 1996. bill clinton got elected. these things come and go. parties adjust. and this republican party will adjust. >> it needs to adjust. >> remember, two years ago -- and i hate to say this -- i've been saying this for four years -- two years ago republicans picked up historic gains in off-year elections. and i said yeah, we did that in 1994. then we lost in 1996. and the same thing has happened. the question is, willie, do they adjust? alec baldwin had a hilarious quote. did you see this quote? >> yeah. which one? >> yeah. what is the exact quote? >> something you like you know your party's in trouble -- >> when you ask -- >> how did the rape guy do, and you have to say "which one?" >> which one? i can't hammer this home enough. i've done it for four years. there is a difference between
." the cia was secretly responsible for u.s. efforts in benghazi. in fact, two of the four american personnel were working for the cia as contractors. but congressional investigators say the cia and state department weren't on the same page about which agency was responsible when it came to security. "the journal" also reports at one point during the attacks, secretary of state hillary clinton telephoned the cia director directly to seek assistance. >> from our parade of papers, "the seattle times." as the election reaches its apex, president george w. bush not out campaigning for mitt romney. but rather speaking at an investment conference in the cayman islands. organizers declined comment. tickets, $4,000 apiece. >> oh, my goodness. >> sir richard branson said to be there as well. >> there you go. "the charleston daily mail." west virginia still feeling impacts of sandy in the form of snow. in some counties, 80% of residents have no power. and in places three feet of snow cover the ground. this must be just unbelievable. forest crews and fema have been working around the clock with chain sa
reasons that we're becoming more competitive around the globe, the u.s. economy is growing in areas and u.s. manufacturing is because of energy expiration and production here in the united states. so i think the conditions are ripe just for a different kind of participation, regardless if it's romney or obama from the corporate community. >> we've been looking for the past couple of weeks at polls and there have been certain bets being placed on this election -- >> mustaches -- >> yes. >> grow a mustache -- >> please don't. i beg you. >> that look you had yesterday -- >> let us hope. let us hope. >> let's hope not. >> romney wins pennsylvania so axelrod has to come on the air and shave his mustache. >> oh, that would be something. all right. here's from the washington post, empty measurements. on the eve of the election, nate silver placed president obama's chances of returning to office at 86.3%, not 86.1%, not 87.8%, at 86.3%. silver's prediction is not an innovation, it's trend taken to its absurd extreme. his work is better summarized as an 83.6% confident that the state polls are corre
chronicle," oil giant bp has been handed the largest ever criminal fine in u.s. history. in connection with the 2010 oil rig explosion that killed 11 people and triggered a massive spill in the gulf of mexico. two employees face involuntary manslaughter charges. bp will plead guilty to the deaths and for lying over how much oil was really gushing out of the deep water horizon. bp made a record $25.8 billion in profits last year. >>> "the indianapolis star," hostess is expected to announce today whether it will shutter operations permanently. the move would result in the loss of 18,000 jobs, and the company could begin to liquidate itself in bankruptcy court. right now striking workers are preventing production over their objections to a contract offering benefit and wage cuts. hostess makes iconic baked goods from twinkies to ding dongs to wonder bread, and it could all go away today. >> be careful what you -- this is a great company. i know you don't love ding dongs and twinkies, but many people do. >> a lot of jobs at stake. >> yes. >> i know it's complicated, for sure. no snarky com
of a u.s. ambassador. >> and the president of the united states and his press secretary said the same thing. >> yeah. >> why susan rice? katty kay, we're in for a heck of a bruising fight. do you agree with us that the republicans will be playing into david plouffe and david axelrod's hands here? >> yes, and that's exactly what the white house is realizing. on the merits of it, if john mccain was indignant about what happened in benghazi, the person he should've called out was the secretary of state. and so, presumably, the person he should be saying was unfit for office if there was anyone he was going to call out would be at the top of the state department. that's not what susan rice's job was to deal with security in bengha benghazi. >> you all can defend susan rice, but i can't. seriously. >> still ahead, we'll be talking to the "washington post's" eugene robinson. also, author nate silver will be here. >> that'll be fun. >> i'm not going to ask for an apology. >> who's the guyen o the right? >> this guy on the right. >> handsome devil. >> he is. senior adviser to open society fou
